The power duo known as ZZT picked up heaps of attention this year when Tiga and Zombie Nation unleashed the massive Zzafrika remix package, and now the guys are back with a new single, ‘Vulkan Alarm!,’ as they prepare to release their debut album, Partys Over World, this 7th of November on Turbo Recordings. As a thank you to their fans on Facebook, the guys are giving away Proxy‘s take on the original, which is naturally inundated with the Russian’s dark, crunchy sound that you’d expect from the Mako Records label boss. If you don’t already, go give ZZT a ‘Like’ on Facebook and check out Jan Driver‘s banging remix as well while you’re over there.
• ZZT – Vulkan Alarm! (Proxy Remix)
The wait is finally over: the HARD Summer Tour kicks off this Friday at Fox Theatre in Oakland. Between Crystal Castles, Rusko, Sinden, and Proxy, our lineup can certainly hold its own against the following evening’s madness in Los Angeles. General admission is sold out, but tickets are still available. Stay tuned for set times and a thorough review to come after the weekend.
• Crystal Castles – Vietnam (Midnight Conspiracy Remix)
• Drop The Lime – Sex Sax (Sinden Remix)
• Polymorphic – Rock To Play (Proxy Re-work)
• Rusko – Raver’s Spesh
I feel silly for writing this, but please stay safe everyone. This has been a rough year for electronic music festivals worldwide and I hope the success of the HARD Summer Tour proves the naysayers wrong about the future of events like these.
Bay Area, if you missed Sound of Stereo last weekend at EDC, then kick off your Independence Day weekend in Santa Cruz with the Belgian duo this Friday. I’ve got a pair of tickets for the first five (yes, you read that correctly) readers to email me at tronjeremy at gottadancedirty dot com with their full names. More details on facebook. Again, sorry groms, this party is 21+.
• Proxy – Vibrate (Sound of Stereo Remix) [192/Beatport]
